BOTOX® Cosmetic

Millions of patients undergo BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments every year to minimize facial wrinkles and achieve a more youthful appearance. This prescription facial injectable can reduce facial wrinkles in the forehead, brow, and eye area as well as muscle bands on the neck. Dr. Chiu performs BOTOX® Cosmetic injections at his Beverly Hills practice on women and men who desire facial rejuvenation. Every patient receives a customized treatment that leads to personalized, youthful, and natural-looking results.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment Areas

Lines and wrinkles that appear on the forehead can give you a harsh, aged appearance. In some individuals, these lines can appear at a very young age. Patients who have deep forehead lines may look perpetually tired and older than they feel. BOTOX® Cosmetic can treat unwanted lines and wrinkles on the forehead and give you a softer, more youthful appearance.

Frown lines are vertical wrinkles that appear between the brows. Caused by frequent muscle contractions from making certain facial expressions over time, frown lines can make you look angry and unapproachable. BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth out this area so that the face appears softer, more relaxed, and more approachable.

Crow’s feet, also called smile lines, are small wrinkles that appear at the outer corners of the eyes. These lines are often among the first signs of facial aging. BOTOX® Cosmetic can minimize aging by eliminating these lines so that the eyes become more of a youthful and attractive focal point on the face.

Neck muscle bands are another sign of aging. The appearance of the neck plays a critical role in the way that others perceive you and your appearance. Dr. Chiu uses BOTOX® Cosmetic to minimize neck muscle bands so that the neck appears smoother and more youthful.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments

During your consultation, Dr. Chiu will evaluate your goals and your facial anatomy to determine the best treatment plan for you. If BOTOX® Cosmetic is the best treatment for your needs, he will determine where and how BOTOX® Cosmetic should be injected to minimize your wrinkles. Some patients will benefit more from facial fillers in addition to or instead of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. In more severe cases, a facelift, brow lift, or other surgical procedure may be the ideal form of facial rejuvenation.

How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived from a purified protein made by Clostridium botulinum bacterium
  • When injected into the facial muscles, BOTOX® Cosmetic limits the nerve activity
  • By halting the muscle movement, BOTOX® Cosmetic stops the cause of expression lines and other similar facial wrinkles

Receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections

  • Dr. Chiu will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the desired area
  • Pain is minimal, but ice or a topical anesthetic cream can be used to numb the treatment area if desired
  • Procedure lasts only 10 to 15 minutes and has no downtime
  • Results will typically last four to six months

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments will not leave you with a “frozen” look if BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected in controlled amounts and the injections are administered by a qualified medical professional. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments with Dr. Chiu produce aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking results.

Am I a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments?

Candidates should be physically healthy adults. You should also have no neuromuscular diseases or major health conditions, and you should not be pregnant or breastfeeding.

How do I know if I need BOTOX® Cosmetic, fillers, or another type of treatment?

Patients who have moderate to severe wrinkles on their forehead, brow, or eye area may need BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments, whereas patients who have wrinkles in the mid or lower face or who have skin volume loss should probably receive fillers. Dr. Chiu will recommend the best treatment for you after conducting a thorough assessment of your face and your goals.
